Trivets were the gift of choice this year. I can’t say I’m to eager to get back on the scroll saw for a while. These are made from cherry, walnut, and maple. I finished them with salad bowl finish because it absorbs nicely and I could dunk the trivets without much running. Thanks for looking – you can view other builds on my YouTube channel. Just type in Making it Matters in the search bar.

Those look great. I bet the receivers were really happy with them.

I like trivets!
These are real nice and uniquely different from the run of the mill trivet!

Thanks – I like trivets as well. I got the pattern from Scrollsaw magazine – I believe it was the Oct 2015 issue. Thanks for commenting
